Don't believe me that these MAs(middle-aged's) are suckers? Oh btw, i have MA parents too, so please don't start thinking about you parents and get offended, this is a general observation(but believe me, your & my parents may have some of the MA traits too..maybe for good, but they are there.) Well, let me put out a check-list.
1. Either the MAs find the other person's kids better mannered than their own & declare that in front of their little angels(which you know is heart-breaking for those little hearts) Or the MAs think that the person's kids are too crude, and again they blaze that into the world. Whether or not either of these two great thoughts reach the child's fragile ear, whomever they are told to, the tone is amazingly disgusting. And god! they are just kids..don't you have better things to do than judge them?
2. And who are they who get married, have children, and when their children are at such a delicate & crucial stage of life, from where they grow into the adults that they are going to be the rest of their lives, decide that they don't get along well, don't love each other or are just plain bored(super-jerks). So they either fight all day long, all of their days or get divorced; I can't come to a decision as to which one of the two is better.
3. Most teenagers, when have a girlfriend/boyfriend, do not cheat. While our MAs, men & women alike, cheat in a commitment like a marriage.
4. We are very loyal to friends, we start hating a Handsome guy if we learn that he has wronged one of our fellow chicas in the slightest manner. MAs are opportunists, for them, a friend lost(by their acquaintance) is a friend gained(by them).
5. No matter how bad the situation may be in their own household w.r.t. family values, they won't miss a chance to bitch about the other's and leave him into shreds. I mean the last thing a failed family person wants is to be publicly mocked.
6. Now many MAs might defend themselves by saying that the Young are the Restless, that teenagers are cheap, vulgar & horny.
- a child is not born with a vulgar vocabulary, he learns from his adults.
- cheap behaviour is aped, not invented,
- teenagers did not make porn films, books & whatever of this sort is available in the market..they are just taking what the MAs are giving.(the producers & publishers are mostly MAs)
I do not judge, behaviour is often an impression of situation, but situations are not always a good excuse of bad behaviour. You might say you are simply returning what you got from the world..but somewhere this cycle of hatred has to stop, Make a change and be a good example to the youth.
